Divorce finalized for Reba McEntire

It was confirmed by the New York Daily News on December 20 that the famous country music singer and actress Reba McEntire, 60, has officially divorced her husband of 26 years, 59-year-old Narvel Blackstock. The two tied the knot back in 1989 and have a son, Shelby Blackstock, who is 25 years old.

McEntire announced on her Facebook account that she was granted the divorce on October 28. The news of her separation from Blackstock was initially released in August, although the news that the divorce had been finalized was not confirmed until recently.

Blackstock has worked as McEntire’s manager for 35 years, and the couple’s representative released a joint statement saying that the two will still continue working together despite the end of their marriage.

Mick Fleetwood’s divorce from Lynn Frankel is finalized

After nearly 20 years of marriage, the drummer and co-founder of the famous rock band Fleetwood Mac, 68-year-old Mick Fleetwood, is now divorced from his wife, Lynn Frankel. The divorce petition was originally submitted as a legal separation filed by Fleetwood back in 2013. It was finalized by a judge on November 20, 2015, but the news broke only after the court documents came out on December 8.

Fleetwood and Frankel tied the knot in 1995 and have two twin daughters, Tessa and Ruby. While it is clear that child and spousal support arrangements have been handled, little is known about the division of assets or custody agreements. Fleetwood allegedly sought joint legal custody in the original separation filing, but he asked that his wife have primary physical custody of the children, according to reports.

Divorce finalized for Jared Fogle after conviction

Former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle is now divorced. Court records show that the divorce was finalized on Nov. 16 by a judge in Boone County.  This comes just days after Fogle was sentenced to 15 years in a federal prison in Englewood.

Fogle’s now ex-wife Kathleen McLaughlin filed for divorce on Aug. 19, immediately following news that Fogle agreed to plead guilty for several counts of distribution and receipt of child pornography and paying for sex with underage girls.

Fogle rose to fame back in 1999 after eating only Subway products to lose weight, and he eventually became a spokesperson for the esteemed company. He and McLaughlin were married in 2010 and had two children together.

The divorce documents include a filing by McLaughlin contesting Fogle’s request to spend time with his children. McLaughlin and her children have since moved to a different state to avoid the attention caused by the scandal.
